Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A recent Moorhead High School graduate has the WE Fest story of a lifetime.

18-year-old Dan Brekke says he's a big Brad Paisley fan and knows how to play all of his songs on guitar.

A few months back -- Dan started tweeting at Brad... Taking selfies with Paisley posters and saying they would be good on stage together.

Yesterday -- Dan started the hastag "let Brekke play".

By the evening -- hundreds of friends, family members and fans had tweeted the hashtag and Pasiley noticed.

After Brad's team watched a few of Dan's youtube videos -- they called him backstage and let him watch the concert up close.

Then they gave him one of Brad Paisley's guitars and asked him to perform with Paisley during the last song of the concert.

Dan says he's trying the hashtag again tonight and hopes to perform with Zach Brown Band.
